Cheerleaders & Chicken Wings

A few weeks ago I went to a Cincinnati Reds baseball game. The Reds have cheerleaders– as if the baseball game were some type of barbaric football match. The following is a letter I sent to Reds’ CEO Robert Castellini. These things will stop only when people make a fuss.  

Dear Mr. Castellini: 

I recently attended a Cincinnati Reds game. 

During the game, a routine by your cheerleaders was shown on a big video screen. At the same time, an ad for chicken wings at Hooters was displayed on another big screen.  

Outside of your taxpayer-financed stadium you have a posted list admonishing the paying customers on how to behave. 

In likening your very own employees to pieces of meat, it is clear that it is you and your organization who need the pointers on how to act.  

Thank you.

  1. Follow your fellow Liberal’s advice to Conservatives concerning offensive television programs – “If you don’t like it, don’t watch it!” or “Show your disapproval by not spending money on the product!”

  2. And if you’re in Texas, set your clock. It’s 9:50A.M. in every part except El Paso.

  3. It is what it is. With the tax payer’s paying the cost, it’s nice to have at least some outside financing. I’m sure the idea is; good looking women = good looking women + wings at hooters.
